I was excited to get this pen because I had a Hi-Tec-C Maica that worked pretty
well. But, this pen was trouble from the first time I tried writing with it. The
ink seemed to be dried up because of the faint writing it produced. But, at
times, if I use the correct part of the tip the pen writes just fine. Very

Love the blue-black, and love the fine tip. I go back-and-forth between this
and my signo dx .28, but I find I reach for my hitec-c pens more often. Fair
warning to those who write big lettering and/or fast: the fine tips will feel
very scratchy to you. If you want/like to write smaller text, this pen is a
On a subjective note: i really like the weight of these, and for whatever
reason, i prefer this pen over it's padded-grip equivalent. I guess all that
means is, you'll have to buy one of each from jetpens and decide for yourself

Nearly 15years ago I was working in Japan and soon discovered these unique and
The write a nice, consistent line and the tips does not get all mushy. Yes,
they can seem scratchy if you're not doing something quite right, but that is
becauseonly a thin, hard tip will write the kind of thin, .3mm type mechanical
pencil kind of lines.
In Japan they sold a pack of these pens in a rainbow of colors. Don't know if
that's available here, but it should be.
A few years after I got back from Japan, I asked Pilot Pens of USA why they did
not have these same pens here back in the states. His response was the lamest,
I-dont'know'whatist one I have ever heard, which was, "We don't sell these pens
here because we want to maintain a variety of pens throughout the world."
Whch is a bit funny as I saw in Japan the same Pilot Pense the same ones we have
here in the USA.
Anyway, if you are like me you want clean, un-varied lines you will like these
pens...for all your writing-related stuff, especially for engineering, math,
science, etc. Through the full life of the pen, the point remains just as firm
as it was from the factory. I got to add, I hope to get some of these as
Christmas presents this year now that I finally found them...again.

Main complaint about this pen is that it is still too scratchy. Color is OK,
probably my third favorite, behind the Uniball Signo, and the Pentel Slicci.
